direction of that state and the voting electrorate has your own new polling out this morning showing a dead heat there. obama and romney both pulling 49% of support out of likely voters. this is in line with that tightening national race according to a number of major polls. so why is, or is it your view, that ohio is kind of the microcosm of the country? >> ohio is, indeed, fredricka. it always is. it's tied this time, but if you were to compare, let's say, texas or utah with new york and put them all in one state, you would have ohio. >> so the president has traveled to that state at least 24 times, mitt romney somewhere more than 40 times this year alone. both of them clearly know it's a very important state. but at this juncture, as the two still will descend on ohio with just a few days before election day, if everything goes according to plan, what do ohioans need to hear from them? >> i think they need assurance from the president that things will get better. things are bad, everyone knows that, but that they'll improve, that the worst is over, if he can convey that effectivel

eighth of the statewide votes and a warsmer michigan. >> the romney campaign is saying they're making major investment in ohio, time and money. are they making -- taking a gamble by making a bet on ohio, that if they lose, they will not have fought or invested a lot of money or time in michigan and pennsylvania, which they might win? are they making a long bet on ohio? >> well, i think they're probably making a correct bet on ohio. ohio is 18 electoral votes are important to them. if i was them, i would be going up on the philadelphia and detroit media markets or at least being serious consideration it to because those get the bulk of the affluent suburbs in the states. you felt -- i'd be going up with ads geared to that population. >> all right. michael, thanks thanks so much e being here. still ahead. billions of dollars in defense cuts set to kick in come january. president obama said on monday the so-called sequester will not happen and wasn't his idea in the first place. we'll check the facts and tell you why it could matter in some key states on election day.

map. romney makes up 6 million, 7 million, 8 million votes. he could pick up a bunch of votes in the non-battleground states. go to the battleground. i'll show how easy it is. if you take today's polls, the president is winning in virginia. wisconsin is on the ground. it leans toward the president. now you give him new hampshire and he sits at 270. that's giving romney ohio, florida and iowa and colorado. that's this issue of the battleground versus the popular. >> more to come from chuck todd. thank you very much. i want to get to the battleground governors. rachel maddow is here from msnbc. carly fiorina. david baracrooks from "the washington post." i feel it's going to be dominated by the economy. it can tip the scales. we have seen an argument from the president that is about trust. this is how he lays it out against governor romney. >> there's no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust. trust matters. you know, you want to know that the person who is applying to be your president and commander and chief is trustworthy. that he means what he says. that he's not j

play this cycle. president obama can count on 243 electoral votes that will go blue and romney can count on 106. with each having to get to 270 to win. the simple take away is the president's path to victory is significantly easier. polls show barack obama consistently ahead in iowa and wisconsin. if he holds on there, he won both last time, he just needs to win florida, ohio or virginia. he's behind in florida and a dead heat in virginia. he seems to be ahead in ohio. it's why the candidates are spending so much time in that state. obama has a 73.6% chance of winning. it's hard to imagine a romney victory without winning ohio. okay. everybody is in ohio. it's such a bizarre undertaking to go through the map and everyone now has these nice interactive things. is that your sense of the race? my sense of the race is that it's very hard to see it not coming down to ohio if we are sitting down on election night figuring out what the call is going to be made, it looks like ohio is going to determine it. you have been around the country. i'm just curious, what sort of the mood has been i

president obama can safely cnt on 201 electoral votes. that is unchanged from sterday. romney can safely count on 191. that is changed. that has changed because north carolina, and let me bring this up today here. north carolina was moved to the tossup category just yesterday. that accounts for the votes that moved away. so where he had at 206, 206 to 201, now 191. and let's turn now to of romney who needs to win north carolina. he is still up in the polls by a significant margin, but four points. yesterday it was more than five. we have that. romney would need also to win, just as before, the state of florida, 29 votes. let's get that. and he is up two points in florida. he also needs virginia where he is up by one point. let's go there. he is building 248. colorado, whereoth candidates are tied up right now 48-48. we will give that to governor romney as well. we will move that into his column, 257. president obama right now is up by two in iowa, what the purpose of this scenariowe will assumed that governor romney wins. i'm sure you won't argue. he also needs nevada where presid

. we are seeing romney go to maine to pick up the one electoral vote we can get from there. they are racing all over covering their bases. it's going to be super interesting. maine and nebraska, barack obama won the congressional district in nebraska last time around omaha. there are ways to get to 269, 269, tie. of course the electoral college has an even number of votes. why have that be possible, but it is possible. how do you think the romney campaign sees this? >> i think you have to think about wisconsin. wisconsin and ohio -- >> this is the big question. >> if romney wins florida, north carolina, virginia and new hampshire and colorado, which are the states where he's been leading to tie in the relatively recent polls. he has to win either ohio or wisconsin. if he wins wisconsin and loses ohio, he could get to 270 that way. they are important. >> if he wins wisconsin -- again it was won by john kerry in 2004, comfortably by barack obama in 2008. it would be a swing back for wisconsin. paul ryan is on the ticket. there's some thinking there and the polling is relatively close.

with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with it. he seems to be doing better. i if you look at the battleground poll -- the pew research poll where you have a big sample. so if you have a subsample you have some confidence the numbers are good. you see that romney, post-october 3rd debate, is carrying apparently statistically significant margins. people with incomes over over $75,000. barack obama carried them 15-49 in 2008. romney made bigger gains with the high income people than people in the lower income category. >> the swing over the last 20 years in affluent suburbs has been attributed to culture, gay marriage and the southern tilt of the republican party, is the swing back this year really because of the economy trumping culture in the minds of most voters? >> well, i think that's true of all segments of voters. the economy is trumping the cultural issue of. it rubbed them out. i think also mitt romney is more the kind o
